I spoke to Martin Truex Junior this week about heading into Richmond knowing he and teammate Clint Bowyer are going to the Chase:
Truex Jr: “Looking forward to going to Richmond with nothing to lose. We’re already locked in and we just go there and try to win the race, so it should be a lot of fun.”
Brad Keselowski has clinched his spot in the Chase, so this race weekend:
Keselowski: “I know I’m going to have a blast at Richmond with no pressure.”
But Jeff Gordon knows to make the Chase, Richmond is a must-win situation.
Gordon: “We got a lot of pressure on us. So, we’re gonna be going there guns loaded and ready to do battle.”
It’s official! Matt Kenseth has moved from Roush Fenway to Joe Gibbs Racing, replacing Joey Logano in the #20 car. Ryan Newman has signed a one year contract extension with Stewart-Haas Racing for next season. Newman has been part of the team since its creation in 2009. And, Office Depot will no longer be a primary co-sponsor of Stewart-Haas’ #14 car driven by Tony Stewart.
